Houston's Feldman makes early exit with shoulder injury

HOUSTON (AP) Houston Astros starter Scott Feldman has left Tuesday night's game against the Seattle Mariners with discomfort in his right shoulder.

Feldman walked two straight batters before grimacing after a pitch to Mark Trumbo that resulted in a fly out for the second out of the third inning. Trainers visited with him briefly on the mound before he left the game and was replaced by Vince Velasquez with Seattle leading 3-1.

Feldman struggled with command Tuesday, walking five and allowing three hits and three runs.

He returned from the disabled list on July 18 after missing almost two months following arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.
